There are many old-fashioned myths about MSE training. (Muscular Strength Endurance Training). Many of these are simply wrong. It is always good to be cautious but when it comes to a point that you’re hindering your success, I think it’s time the facts are put out there for people to read!
Below are a list of benefits from various types of training.
Resistance Training in General:
– Joint Stability – Improved Posture – Improved Tone & Shape – Decreased Risk of Injury – Increased Bone Density – Improved Neuromuscular Efficiency
– Hypertrophy (Fast Twitch Muscle Fibres) – Stronger Ligaments and Tendons – Improved Efficiency of the CP System
– Improved efficiency of Slow Twitch Muscle Fibres – Increased Capillarisation – Increased Size of Mitochondria – Improved Efficiency of Lactic Acid and Aerobic Energy System
Now just to pick out one of those that will help anyone in their daily lives. Increased Size of Mitochondria. First of all have you ever noticed how children are so full of energy and never stop bouncing around! Well they have a naturally high amount of Mitochondria. If one feels they have a lack of energy and are always tired, it would be useful to know that increased Cardiovascular exercise allows you to have more Mitochondria and therefore create MORE energy!
Don’t get me wrong, there could be other factors playing a role here too, such as lack of sleep, a bad diet where you aren’t eating the right things, however i urge you (Please remember to train at a sensible pace, if you are remotely unsure then consult your doctor) to give this a go. Resistance training and Cardiovascular exercise regularly. And soon you should feel alot more active and happier with yourself!
